Keep those insects away

by Janet Cox and Company

Now that you’ve invested time and money into your vegetable garden, how do you keep those pesky pests away from that
all-you-can-eat buffet? According to the Farmers' Almanac, here are some plants that you can buy at your local nursery or home improvement store that naturally repel insects.

  • Lavender: Not only is lavender beautiful and fragrant, but it is known to repel mosquitoes, fleas, flies, and moths.
  • Basil: Use it to repel flies and moths in your garden, then harvest it for use in the kitchen.
  • Thyme: This plant comes in many varieties, and it makes a wonderful ground cover for dry, rocky areas. Thyme will also help keep mosquitoes away from your gardens.
  • Mint: Mint is another mosquito repellent, but one that you should use with care because it spreads aggressively and may take over a planting. Put it in pots to keep mosquitoes away from your porch.
  • Lemongrass: This beautiful grassy plant is packed with citronella, which is one of the best-known alternatives to synthetic repellents like DEET.
  • Alliums: This member of the onion family is known for tall spikes that produce gigantic balls of purple flowers (although there are also smaller varieties). Alliums are one of the best defenses against a variety of pests, including cabbage worms, aphids, carrot flies and slugs.
  • Chrysanthemums: Use these flowers as a border planting around your home to keep out bedbugs, fleas, lice, roaches, ants, and more. They also act as a repellant to ticks, spider mites, Japanese beetles, and other garden pests.
  • Petunias: Known for their many colors and profusion of flowers, petunias also repel leafhoppers, squash bugs, tomato hornworms and aphids.
  • Marigolds: The marigold is one of the most well-known insect repelling plants and with good reason — these beauties will keep aphids, mosquitoes and other pests away.
